My boyfriend and I rocked up late in Negombo with no place to stay and we were pleasantly suprised to find ocean view. We stayed in a non air conditioned room for 3500 rupees (about $30Aud) and the place was clean as a whistle with a powerful fan to keep you cool. The service was great but the best part... More

It's my fifth visit to this guest house over the last three years. By far this is my favorite - the rooms have been upgraded, the beds are really comfortable, everything is clean and the staff is super helpful. Their advice is correct and they quote prices that do not get changed (as I've experienced with other guest houses). There... More

We have stayed in Negombo several times before, always in an Hotel.I wasn't sure what to expect but was delighted with our standard room at Ocean View.The room was spotless, huge comfortable bed and a lovely modern bathroom with hot water and a great shower. The breakfasts next door at Sea Joy are great value.

I loved my stay at Ocean View- Although a little misleading as it is not right on the ocean (though I suppose you can see the ocean across the street and down the road). However, the beach front ones I looked at were the same price and not nearly as clean or nice. Hot water and a/c in all rooms... More

Ocean View actually had the best shower I had in my time in Sri Lanka! The staff were friendly but laid back and the atmosphere was easy going. A good location, right by the beach, lots of restaurants and only about 15-20 minutes to the fish markets and Negombo city. Definitely recommend.

We recently stayed here for one night following a late night flight into Colombo. The room was comfortable and clean, the staff were helpful. Overall a good experience. If you're looking for accommodation on a reasonable budget, I can safely recommend this venue.

I was recommended to stay at Ocean View Tourist Guest House from my previous host in Kandy and it's a very nice place indeed. Very conveniently located along the busy streets (with a very nice restaurant just next door - Sea Joy, I think), the only downside is that they do not serve food for lunch/ dinner. But overall, the... More

We stayed for one night at the end of our Sri Lanka vacation and it was one of the best places we stayed. The room was very clean, there was hot water and best if all an actual shower stall! We would stay there again we enjoyed it so much!
